Tokyo Auto Salon 2013: Toyota Aqua G Sports Concept (Prius C)

Toyota Aqua G Sports ConceptToyota Aqua G Sports Concept
The Tokyo Auto Salon is the Japanese equivalent of the SEMA Show. But instead of customizing Camaros and Mustangs, they like to put body kits on hybrids. Tuning a green car might seem like a taboo move, but in Japan, they are so used to hybrids that owning one that’s ‘special’ is important.
Gazoo Racing and Toyota unveiled a special body kit for the Aqua, otherwise known as the Prius C. The hybrid 1.5-liter engine has been left largely untouched, but they just couldn’t resist putting on a sports muffler.

However, the cosmetic changes are striking, starting with brand new front and rear bumpers, plus side skirts and a set of 17-inch alloys with 195/45 R17 tires. We’re especially fond of the huge intake with Audi-style horizontal chrome bars.

As far as the interior goes, the Aqua gets new sports seats, a different trim finish and aluminum pedals.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
